You Keep Using That Word...

I just got done watching an episode of Penn and Teller's "Bullshit" on HBO. I like this show because it takes careful aim at a number of sacred cows and gores them thoroughly. I don't always agree with them, but as Neal Boortz likes to say if you agree with someone 100% of the time, one of you is irrelevant.

The latest episode was about the peace movement, and the conclusion was right on the mark; namely that feeeeeeelings matter more than actual results to the moonbats who do the marching and protesting. Nothing surprising there, and they make the very valid point that the surefire way to spread peace is through crass capitalism.

During the show I was constantly amused by the assertion that the present administration is fascist. GWB is constantly referred to as Bu$Hitler, or is portrayed on signs with a little toothbrush moustache. Cheney and Rove don't escape the notice of the morons either.

Reports from the occupied territories deep in our colleges and universities reveals that many a leftist professor will rant and rage to his or her captive audience on a myraid of subjects, each with a common theme: the current administration is made up of closet Nazis, that the government under the current administration is fascist, and that a shot of hopey-changitude will make it all A-OK.

The irony, which is absolutely lost in the din, is that if our government truly were as fascist as they say, and if GWB truly were Hitler, and if Rove truly was Goebbles, and if Cheney truly was Himmler, on and on and on, the people who would protest would either be dead, in prison waiting to be dead, or cowering in corners afraid to speak like the gutless cravens they are. The only reason they speak, march, protest and lecture is because they know, deep down in their cowardly souls, that there is nothing to fear and that no harm will come to them.

As a side note, it's funny that the gun owners who are generally supportive of government but want it to follow it's Constitutional forms are in greater danger of the 3 AM door-kicking-in than the frothing lefties who claim to be against the government - or, more to the point, against this particular administration. Of course leftists are all in favor of more government, as long as it is the right kind of more government, harder, faster.

In conclusion, I would like to direct your attention to one of my earlier, and in my opinion one of my best, posts entitled simply "Peace".

They also fail to mention that the last three major wars were a result of failed liberal policies.

Leftists are the ones who want to silence Fox news and other conservative voices and they make no bones about it. When was the last time Rush Limbaugh called for the dismantling of a news agency he doesn't agree with?

great post!

DS,
you have to stop using logic. You'll only baffle the lefties.

Not that it takes a lot of effort to baffle lefties.
Thanks for stopping by, BisW.

Appeasement never works Hammer, you would think they would have figured it out by now.
But if you can't agree with them, use the power of the Govermnent to shut them up...
